Middleweight Standards Comparo

By Sean Alexander, Mar. 31, 2004
Somebody get me a cup of coffee. It's 3:00am, Fonzie and I have been here way too long now, but the effort has just paid off with this epic 7-way comparo of the BMW F 650CS, Harley Sportster 1200R, Honda 599, Kawasaki Ninja 500R, Suzuki DL 650 V-Strom, Triumph Speed Four, and the Yamaha FZ-6.

After reading your answers from our recent "Middleweight Standards" poll, we decided to round-em-up and shoot-em-out. In a month or two, the winner of this test will go on to meet the two overwhelming favorites from the poll (SV-650 and Ducati Monster 620/800) in a three-way "Best of the Best - Middleweight Standard Shootout" So read the story then tell us if you agree with our choice, and how you feel this winner will fare against the SV and Monster in the upcoming 3-way "Best of Best" shootout. -Sean
